Google was accused of spying on its users

Boies Schiller Flexner filed a lawsuit against Alphabet Inc, the parent company of the IT giant Google from the United States, accusing the latter of spying on users even when they disable the corresponding functions in their accounts.

The company was accused of violating the Federal wiretapping law, as well as the California privacy law. The lawsuit alleges that Google apps and browsers continued to collect user data while the activity tracking feature was disabled.

It is worth noting that this is not the first lawsuit of this company against Google, previously Boies Schiller Flexner has already tried to sue the IT giant for tracking users of the Chrome browser even when incognito mode is enabled.

The amount of compensation that will be required from Google in the new lawsuit has not yet been announced. The Corporation itself has not yet commented on the news.
